DEC asks public to pipe up about pipeline

May 01, 2015 12:02 am
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) April 30 opened a 15-day public comment period on the re-submitted Water Quality Certificate application for the proposed, federally regulated Constitution Pipeline. Public comments on the proposed project will now be accepted through Thu., May 14. The Constitution Pipeline is a proposed interstate natural gas pipeline through Broome, Chenango, Delaware, and Schoharie counties. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) in October 2014. The DEC is overseeing a Water Quality Certification, a Protection of Waters permit, a Water Withdrawal permit, and a Freshwater Wetlands permit for state-protected wetlands and adjacent areas. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also must issue permits for the project and its review is ongoing. Written comments should be submitted to:
